Golden Cinema has enjoyed huge success in Narrative Filmmaking, producing 7 films in past 6 years. In 2009, GC Pictures partnered with Shane Bartlett from Riposte to produce the award-winning Chase Kuertz-directed short film “In Aggression” which garnered much attention in the Nashville Filmmaking Community after its Watkins Film Screening premiere, winning numerous awards: Best Picture, Best Short, Best Directing, Best Editing, Best Sound Design, and Best Writing. Both Wynn Reichert and Kylie Angelica went home with awards for Best Actor and Best Actress.
John Ashby at Film Rogue said the film “demonstrates what commitment to our craft can produce”. Brian Morton at Rogue Cinema gave it “four out of four”. And Film Threat awarded the film “3 Stars”, saying Chase Kuertz “does a good job of masking its narrative to protect against too much predictability or lack of mystery”.
In 2012, Chase Kuertz was able to present “In Aggression” to RAW: Artists, a nation-wide search for the best artists in the country, from Filmmakers to Fashion and Photography. The film awarded Chase Kuertz “Filmmaker of the Year” for the Nashville City semi-finals. The very same year, our latest short “Cat’s in the Cradle” was placed into the Semi-Finals of NexTV Entertainment’s Acting/Directing Talent Search.
